Summary

Wow.

The Good

Well, I don't like Apple, so this game really fit me well. It is also pretty fun. What you do is try to destroy the Apple manufacturing plants and avoid their ships. You can choose to dodge them or shoot them with your lasers, although you have a rather limited supply

The controls are also decent. Although I do forget to use the brake button while moving, they are good.

Back in the good days of PCs, there were no sound cards. No Ad Lib, no Sound Blaster, no nothing. There was the PC Speaker. PC Speaker sounds are not very good, but it is not fair to judge on things like that. The sounds are good for the 80's.

The graphics are pretty much the same. They are in ASCII, but that is also decent for the 80's. Although they could have been in CGA (Color Graphics Array) they are fine.

The Bad

People that like Apple will be turned off by the game. But why would they play this anyway?

The Bottom Line

Hate Apple? Think the PC is better than the Mac? Then download this great game and have fun!
